Enjoy the amazing abundance and great fishing variety at Whalers' Cove.
These rich waters produce all five species of Pacific Salmon, Halibut, Gray (pacific) Cod, Black Cod (Sablefish), Ling Cod, Red Snapper and 20 other varieties of rockfish. Due to the natural quantity of herring, the salmon feed in this area for months before migrating to their home rivers. This is one of the world's finest fisheries.
Our waters are a hundred miles from any other towns, so we enjoy wilderness fishing without day traffic pressure from commercial and sport fleets. You won't find boats or planes from other lodges anchored where you want to fish. We enjoy productive fishing only 10-30 minutes from our dock, avoiding long boat rides. Calm waters, created by the sheltered weather effect of nearby islands, adds to the pleasure of fishing at Whaler's Cove Lodge.
